camouflage sensory bin

Great for not only sensory play but also for teaching kids about how some animals and reptiles keep themselves safe and also hunt. 

In this bin there is only-
rocks-(costed me any $4 at a local yard sale all new in bags 3 different kinds, so there were many different feels)
toy animals- (cost me $2 at a local yard sale, again most had different feels to them for sense of touch.)
and toy digger and tweezers (we had for awhile)

I hidden some snakes and lizards in and around the rocks and then added the fake tree and bigger snake.

Before I let my daughter dig in I explained to her what it means when someone or something is camouflage and also told her besides the big snake there is many other animals in this box and seen if without touching it if she could find any.
When she did not I let her dig in and find them while I explained why some animals use camouflage and to always watch out for animals that do.

When she decided she was done playing I made sure to explain also that these are toy animals and she is never to grab or go near a real wild animal. That she is to respect nature!

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~
